The course was great. Useful tools to use in my lesson to illustrate and represent concepts.

Great course. Good pace. There were opportunities to play around and make things more complicated if you had the skills but good for real beginners too.

Some of the background stuff seemed a bit “fluffy”. I actually don’t think I needed to hear as much about the brain (though I understand that this was part of the aim of the course). I would have been more interested in principles and practical strategies fo structuring lessons and teaching certain concepts. When we did this though, it was greatly helpful. I would have benefited from more worked examples of lesson structure (eg ones that had actually worked / not worked).

Good discussions and examples relevant to today’s classrooms. A range of strategies to help with catering to students' needs was discussed in good detail.
